Joe Haden to return in Week 12: Fantasy implications

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Joe Haden will make his return against the Steelers after sitting out one game with an oblique injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden (oblique) confirmed, via Mary Kay Cabot, that he will play on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Haden tweaked his oblique in practice last week and was a last-minute scratch against the Cowboys. He returned to practice this week and should be good to go.

Haden has 27 tackles, two interceptions and five passes defensed on the season.

Fantasy Impact: IDP players can safely slot Haden back in their lineups. The Browns will gladly welcome him back after Dez Bryant torched Buster Skrine.

Haden is likely to match up against Mike Wallace. Wallace's fantasy value was already shaky with the ancient Charlie Batch starting at QB, and now he has Haden to deal with. I really don't like this matchup.
